Leopard and Leather Pt. 2

Blu Pepper shirt (similar) / Forever 21 skirt (similar) / Zara booties / tights c/o Darby’s (similar) / 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target bag / sunglasses c/o zeroUV

Take two on these basics seen in yesterday’s post –  an animal trimmed button-down and (faux) leather skirt. In the event of brisk weather, I’m always partial to covering my legs. I’m just seriously cold no matter where I go, so I love these tights from Darby’s. The feminine, lace trim plays off the edgy, asymmetrical leather. Because of the knee-high tights, the outfit really doesn’t need anything more – adding other pieces would be overload.

And I’m a repeat offender of the side tuck/front tuck as you probably know. When used the wrong way, it can look messy or frumpy, so be super selective if you try it. It works well on this crisp button-down because of the contrast of formal shirt to informal tuck. Sometimes, I’ll even do it with sweaters too. What do you think? To tuck or not to tuck?

    Such an awesome outfit. Those socks are killer! Sometimes I'm self-conscious about differing my tuck, but it's fun to mix it up sometimes. 🙂
